Kenny Williams Wasn't Wrong

Kenny Williams Wasn't Wrong
It came as a shock when Adam LaRoche announced his retirement on Tuesday.  When the reason for that announcement started to come to light, it got a little more shocking.  I’ll admit, when I heard that LaRoche was retiring because Kenny Williams asked him to stop bringing his son to the clubhouse, I thought it...

Alex Avila? Eh, Why Not? (Or The White Sox Cycle: The Stirring)

Alex Avila? Eh, Why Not? (Or The White Sox Cycle: The Stirring)
Here we are White Sox fans, Alex Avila. I’ve got nothing against the guy, if he comes back from a less than stellar 2015 (only 67 games, .191/.339/.287, with a stint on the DL)  it could prove to be a shrewd move. But doesn’t it seem like we go down this road A LOT with... Read more »

The White Sox Plan? No Plan!

The White Sox Plan? No Plan!
So, let me get this straight: The baseball season ended on November 1. The White Sox season ended October 4. Yet, according to Kenny Williams the White Sox have no plan for the off season.  Well that isn’t quite right, they have three potential scenarios, A, B, and C.  Or maybe not, because in the...

Are You Paying Attention Rick Hahn?

Are You Paying Attention Rick Hahn?
If I was attending Sox Fest this winter I would have one question for Rick Hahn. I would ask the White Sox GM if he is able to call Jerry Reinsdorf at this point in his career? You may recall in July that Kenny Williams revealed that he was the intermediary between Hahn and the... Read more »

Time To Say Good-Bye to Kenny Williams

Time To Say Good-Bye to Kenny Williams
When Kenny was in Egypt-land…Let My Kenny GO!!!  I know in some quarters it is anathema to advocate for the departure of Kenny Williams, but it is time. We will always have 2005, but that is a decade ago and as it stands right now, it might be another decade before the White Sox sniff... Read more »

Kenny Williams Is In Charge, Just Ask Him

Kenny Williams Is In Charge, Just Ask Him
As the White Sox pile up the losses and the blame for why the team is so bad is being spread around, but mostly falling on Robin Ventura, one person has stepped forward to take accountability.  On Saturday, Kenny Williams in an interview with Paul Sullivan, said that ultimately he is responsible for the White Sox...

The White Sox at the Winter Meetings: Samardzija: A Big Move

The White Sox at the Winter Meetings: Samardzija: A Big Move
The Winter Meetings are underway and it’s nice to see the White Sox are in the news.  I was not convinced they would be able to make a trade over the course of the meetings, as Rick Hahn said about the meetings, it’s a place to lay the ground work for future trades.  Of course,... Read more »

Your 2013 White Sox: John Danks (Preview #14)

Your 2013 White Sox: John Danks  (Preview #14)
What was Kenny Williams thinking?  John Danks is a decent enough pitcher and at 26 a contract extension until he was 31 isn’t the craziest thing Kenny had ever done.  However, with his signing bonus and other factors worked in, Baseball Prospectus has Danks making $15.75M this year and 2013-2016 making $14.25M, at least as...

White Sox and Attendance: Few Facts and a Lot of Fiction.

This is a bit of a rant, I’ll admit. By definition, a rant is not the most logical, thought out discussion of any given topic. It is tinged at the very least with emotion, at most a full blown rage. I’d like to think that I’m somewhere in the middle, not all capacity for reason... Read more »

Kenny Williams: the Human Representation of Tabliope

Kenny Williams: the Human Representation of Tabliope
Kevin Youkilis is a White Sox, hurr—rah? I can’t imagine he can be any worse than the two black holes that have been patrolling third base for the Sox this season, but we’ve seen this act before with Kenny, a trade for a former star who looks to be on the down side of his... Read more »
